Experience Africa Adventure Travel & Adventure Vacations

While our everyday world may seem crowded and tamed at times, it should come as no surprise that Africa still has vast and virtually unexplored tracts of wilderness where those with an adventurous spirit will truly feel alive.

Our Africa adventure travel safaris combine off-the-beaten track destinations with unforgettable activities: experience the exhilaration of Big 5 country on a walking safari in Zambia’s South Luangwa; fly to tucked-away lodges in Tanzania’s most remote reserves; get close to the wildebeest migration in a mobile tented camp; climb Mount Kilimanjaro; or track highly endangered mountain gorillas in the jungles of Uganda and Rwanda.

If you prefer an adventure holiday filled with tropical sunshine and soft white sand, we can recommend remote Indian Ocean islands in northern Mozambique or the outer islands of the Seychelles where it’s more likely that you’ll share the beach with wildlife rather than people. Or how about a beach holiday with a difference in land-locked Malawi: the welcoming beaches of dazzling Lake Malawi are the perfect place to forget about city stress.

And the amazing thing is that while you may be exploring the wildest places imaginable, you can still slip between cool cotton sheets after a candle-lit supper at the end of the day. Our adventure travel holidays have been selected as much for their locations and activities as for their focus on luxury and comfort – you certainly won’t be roughing it!
